Charles City – You may have noticed your U.S. Cellular service being not existent both yesterday and this morning. Manager at U.S. Cellular, Rachel Fox posted on Facebook yesterday saying: “A fiber optic line was cut in town and is interfering with all US Cellular service, they are working on getting it back up as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.”
Fox then went on to say that the repairs would be done in 4-5 hours which would have landed at 6 p.m. yesterday. When the deadline was reached, Fox updated the confused locals later saying, “Guessing it might be worse than they thought.”
